Over 2,000 motorcycles seized by the Lagos State Environment and Special Offences Unit (taskforce) would be crushed at Alausa by the agency.

Another set of 2,228 motorcycles were impounded for flouting the ban of their operations on highways across six Local Government Areas and their Council Development Areas.

Prior to the June 1 enforcement of the ban,  security agencies had clamped down on recalcitrant cyclists on major highways especially between Toyota and Mile Two bus stops on the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, Cappa to Agege along the Abeokuta Expressway as well as major junctions at Surulere and Lagos Island.

A statement by the agency’s Director, Press and Public Affiars, Gbadeyan Abdulraheem, said over 259 bikes were seized and 18 suspects including passengers arrested during the first two days of the enforcement.

He said all those arrested would be prosecuted.

According to him, scores of motorcycles were crushed on May 25, adding that the chairman, CSP Shola Jejeloye, believed the action would further make the ban thorough and effective.
